thanks, but Roger is not her in her target group. And I don't have to be embarrassed having never heard of her. you see, celebrity is very subjective.

Re: madrid

And comments on the betting/match fixing issues.

Federer stunned by match-fixing and gambling claims in tennis

The Associated Press
Friday, October 12, 2007

MADRID, Spain:
Roger Federer is stunned by all the talk of match-fixing and gambling in tennis.

"I'm surprised by all of these stories, shocked really that this might be happening," the top-ranked Federer told The Associated Press on Friday. "I've been around for the last 10 years and have never been approached or ever heard anything about it until these comments came out."

Andy Murray said corruption in the game was common knowledge earlier this week, but then backtracked.

"Before I make any serious comments about this I'm going to speak with Andy," said Federer, who is in Madrid for next week's Masters tournament. "I'm going to speak with the federation and all the bodies so I can get a better idea of just what exactly is going on with this right now."

ATP Player Council president Ivan Ljubicic and second-ranked Rafael Nadal have doubted Murray's claims. Nikolay Davydenko, the player at the center of the sport's biggest match-fixing scandal, criticized Murray.

Davydenko withdrew from a match in Poland in August against 87th-ranked Martin Vassallo Arguello in the third set because of a foot injury. An online betting site, in an unprecedented move, then voided bets on the match.

The ATP has said it is investigating.

"I haven't read into the whole circumstances surrounding these stories, but I will be these days," Federer said. "I hope that this isn't happening. I think I would have heard something sooner if it had been."

Re: madrid

^^ He's almost always wearing it during practice. It's funny to see he hasn't changed at all except for the much broader shoulders
